One of the best things about being a food blogger is that I'm always trying new dishes and recipes. I also follow many American bloggers and youtubers, so I've discovered amazing dishes that are not very common in my country, like apple cider. Oh my god, it's so good!
I made some changes, so excuse me if it's not like the traditional recipe, but tasted great. I think it's my favorite fall drink and is perfect for rainy and cold days, especially if you stay at home watching movies with your family or your friends or reading a good book.
Although it's really easy to make, it's not a quick recipe, so I don't make apple cider very often. If you want to enjoy this delicious beverage more often, you can make a big batch of apple cider and them freeze what you won't use within a few days to have on hand a comforting healthy drink.
- I used red, yellow and green apples, but you can use any type of apples you want.
- Maple syrup is my favorite sweetener, but feel free to use another one instead like coconut sugar, molasses, agave syrup, cane sugar, stevia, etc.
- Ground cinnamon can be used instead of the cinnamon sticks and there are other spices you can add like cloves.
Homemade Apple Cider
- 2 green apples
- 2 red apples
- 2 yellow apples
- 1 orange
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- ½ cup maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 12 cups water
- Wash the apples and the orange and cut them into quarters.
- Place all the ingredients in a large pot and when bring water to a boil. Then reduce heat to medium and simmer for about 1 or 2 hours. The longer it simmers, the more the flavors will meld together.
- Strain out the apple cider juice into a clean pot.
- Serve hot.

I'm so sorry about that! I encourage you to make it again 🙂 I'm sure it will be better next time!
Do you peel and deseed the apples? Or doesn't it really matter since you strain the cider?
Hi Tonia! I don't, but it's up to you 🙂
I LOVE this recipe! I have been making this every week to have a warm comforting drink on hand. It is so easy to make and not too sweet. Plus it makes the whole house smell yummy 🙂

This was a great recipe! I ended up using agave syrup instead of maple syrup and added in 3 tbspoons of brown sugar(brown sugar made it heavenly). I also added a cinnamon stick to each cup before serving, but I do admit that it did go a little overboard on the cinnamonny goodness.
Hi Naheed! Thanks a lot 😀 You're right, brown sugar tastes sooo good 😀
